New Gaia Rhythm Show extravaganza set to debut in Sydney on New Year’s Eve!

It’s our most ambitious and spectacular production yet – a smorgasbord of entertainment, with six performances on stage incorporating didgeridoos and drums, electric guitars, flutes and haunting Asian stringed instruments, singers and dancers from Africa, Asia and Australia, live fire dancing, acrobatic displays and much more. It’s called Gaia – the ancient Greek name for planet earth, because it is a distillation of the world’s great rhythms and celebrations of life.

The Gaia Rhythm Show draws on Drum Beats Creative Director Angela Grima’s diverse background in theatre, opera, jazz, world music and choreography, backed by the incredibly talented and multiculturally diverse team of musicians who work with Drum Beats. These musicians come from around the world from countries such as Hungary, Malta, Guinea, Switzerland, Senegal, Latvia, Ghana, Burma, America, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Egypt and Australia. Many of us speak more than one language, but of course the most common language we share and understand better than any other is the language of rhythm.

Here is a peek at what we did for Conrad Jupiters High Rollers Ball last New Years Eve

NYE 2010 in the Crystal Rainforest

Sunday, January 23, 2011
The brief was to provide high class yet earthy entertainment that would enhance the other world feel of the Crystal Rainforest.

The 860 guests had seen almost everything so from past experiences it was important that the entertainment be different, new and definitely of the highest quality.
New costumes were designed & new music was also written & composed especially for the event.

Images & video will be online shortly but in the meantime here is a quick peek backstage during preparations.
